London’s West End is one of the best places in the world to see a live show, and if you’re staying in the city for a romantic break this Valentine’s Day, there’s plenty of treats in store! Here’s our complete guide to the best shows to share with a loved one this February, whether you’re in town on the 14th or planning your own romantic celebration at a later date.

Les Miserables

A musical adaptation of a Victor Hugo novel, all set to the backdrop of Revolutionary France, might not sound like the most romantic evening of theatre – but this long-running addition to the London stage features a love struck couple as the centrepiece of its ensemble cast.

Currently celebrating its 30th anniversary, Les Miserables is a truly legendary production which has won multiple awards. Continuing to sweep audiences along in this tale of destruction, passion and deception, the current production will continue its run at the Queen’s Theatre until 13th July 2019, giving you plenty of time to see it during your stay at the Park Grand Hotel Kensington.

The Phantom of the Opera

Another of the most popular musicals in the world, this award-winning production will be playing at Her Majesty’s Theatre until 5th October 2019. While you’re taking advantage of one of our London hotels romantic packages, this is a great way to show a loved one you care – and the epic tale is sure to bring out your inner romantic. Telling the story of a young chorus girl and an opera ‘ghost’, the show recreates all the splendour of early 20th century theatre, with musical numbers which have been dazzling audiences since 1986. To see it for yourself, take a trip to London’s West End this Valentine’s Day.


Based on the Disney classic, this extravagant theatre production has already taken the Broadway stage by storm, and now you can experience the show in London’s West End. Playing at the Prince Edward Theatre until 31st August 2019, the creative team has developed a stage-play which is at once comedic, romantic and filled with awe-inspiring spectacle. Whether you are already a fan of the original Disney film or just want to see how it’s been adapted for the stage, you’re in for a real treat. We recommend an early meal at the Grand Park Restaurant before heading off for an evening of incredible theatre.

Mamma Mia

For the last 17 years, London audiences have been singing along with this production of Mamma Mia, a smash-hit musical which will be running at the Novello Theatre until 14th September 2019. Set on a Greek Island, the story follows 20-year-old Sophie as she prepares for her own wedding, and muses on inviting the father she’s never met. Narrowing the candidates down to three, Sophie invites them to visit and chaos ensues. With a central romance and the rekindling of old flames, this is a surprisingly touching show with plenty of laughs along the way.
